Larry Caine, president of Evergreen’s Rotary Club during the 2017-2018 year, made his presentation of $6,000 to the Evergreen Chorale. Caine said, “This gift is in recognition of the heightened level of excellence the Evergreen Chorale has achieved under the artistic direction of Christine Gaudreau and the business direction of Susan Kramer in these past six or seven years.”
Caine further explained that while many outgoing presidents have spread around their allotted grant money, he focused the entire amount entrusted to him on the Evergreen Chorale as recognition of the tremendous growth the organization has achieved, most notably through the winning of many awards throughout the state of Colorado.
The Rotary Club of Evergreen has a long tradition of allowing the outgoing president to make personally designated grants to nonprofit organizations of their choice. It’s the club’s way of saying thanks for leading the organization this past year.
